Hi, So my Hindi class got the Awesome word list translated, but I'm a bit confused as to how to use it. When we make flashcards, we are picking our own images right? So are we supposed to use the word list with our teacher? (I'm not even sure she could adjust the curriculum that way). How does the awesome word list relate to spaced repetition?

  • You really should read the book, it will give you a lot of details like this. How the list relates to spaced repetition is simple, you use the open source free program called Anki and you create cards using that. You can do it with physical cards too and a Leitner box, but it's harder to do images on them unless you're good at drawing.

  • I think you misunderstood my question. I understand your to make the flashcards and study them. I'm trying figure out the best use of the illustrated Awesome Word List.

    Is this just an good organization system for making the flashcards? If so, I think a based list isn't much worse than the illustrated one, because I'm picking my own. Or is the idea that you work with a tutor to make sentences out of those images before I pick my own images for individual flashcards?

  • Excuse the typos above: "I think a text-based list isn't much worse than the illustrated list, because I'm picking my own images later anyway." We discussed what to do with the list today. I think we are going to actually try to just crop each image to the part that corresponds with that word. I don't know if this is any more practical than just picking brand new images, but otherwise, I don't know what to do with the illustrations.

  • Hi Sribke, I have had the illustrated word list (Arabic) for a while and now that I am finally looking at it seriously I'm also wondering about the added value of the illustrations.
    I'm struggling to see how some of the words even relate to the pictures so it's going to be hard to construct a story.
    I also wonder where the statistics for the frequency of these words came from - even in English. Outer space? Nuclear? Is there any plan to adapt the word list to the target language? Stuff like church, priest, pork can't be very frequent in Arabic...

  • Ooh! Hindi is firmly on my wish list (below Finnish, Bulgarian and Dutch, maybe about tied with Georgian and Italian)... any chance you are able to share the translated list for others who want to learn?
